A.Silva is a really really classy guy and I hate the Ohio audience for booing him like they did. Totally unnecessary.
I think Nate wins but hope Silva does.

I'd give it to Nate but for one critical thing. He has trouble standing with southpaw strikers, and A. Silva is a southpaw. I think Silva will drop him in the third or fourth.

Interviews are big parts of the event for me...I always like to hear the interviews, and they tell you a lot about a person...Him having to have an interpreter doesn't give me the luxury of learning anything about him or his personality.



seriously, i mean what can a word for word translation every give the audience ?

id take marquart on this one too. not because silvas takedown defense is bad, which i disagree with, but i think marquart will control the fight when it hits the ground. i think silva will be able to defend against the submissions and i think nate will bring a gameplan strategic enough to avoid the knockout. marquart by decision.

Silva has alot of class. He is a good champ. If anything having non english speaking champ and with Crocop possibly champ in a few months would make UFC look like it has all the international talent.. And f*ck the people who Boo him for not being able to speak english. Hes a fighter, Im sure not even half of the Supermodels, Basketball players, Football players, Baseball players have a education level over 9th grade but thats a different story.

Anyways.. SIlva vs Marquardt looks like an awesome fight. I think this will be both of their hardest test yet in the UFC.

What's english have to do with it? Maybe its because I'm Canadian and we're use to different languages but worrying what language the champ speaks is just plain racist!

Hey, I never dogged Silva in any way...I said he's a great fighter and he's the #1 or 2 MW in the world. I'm not racist...i have friends from different races. I just don't like the translator. End of story.

If interviews and TV personality are a big part then you should go back to WWE

Less talky, more fighty for me. I could care less if the champion sang showtunes in pre/post fight interviews just as long as he was exciting.

Fights make the post/pre fight interviews exciting, not the other way around.

IMO Im picking Anderson. Marquardt is great on the ground and on the inside, but watching his fights he eats a lot of punches in order to gain inside control.

You guys are misunderstanding me...I said that Silva is an exciting fighter, he's one of the very best and he's #1 or 2 at MW in the world. I just PREFER someone who can entertain me with words also.

I can understand that. Someone you can relate a little more to. The language barrier plays virtually no role for me though
